Quote of the Night

July 3, 2009

scan0061As midnight passes, as the wine glass is slowly emptied, as the cat snores on the sofa’s spine, the quote of night is inspired by tonight’s Zen-heavy themes. Here’s 1960s Asian philosophy maven Alan Watts on Zen:

“Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.”


Quote of the Day: Keep Renewed

“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day,
something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would
be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of
unanimity.”
Christopher Morley
